Filterdns core dumps

  • Thanks in Advance for any assistance.

    Was running 2/5/10 (1655) for the better part of 2 weeks and then had to reboot.  Updated Friday to 2/19 (0419) and ran into some issue with filterdns today.

    Every ~8 minutes would receive the following in system log

    Feb 21 17:03:30 	kernel: pid 44058 (filterdns), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
    Feb 21 16:55:29 	kernel: pid 14881 (filterdns), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
    Feb 21 16:47:27 	kernel: pid 25806 (filterdns), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)

    This occurred for 2-3 hours as I remember and decided to go back to the "trusty" 2/5/10 release – same issue.

    Just updated to 2.0-BETA1 built on Sun Feb 21 05:56:33 EST 2010 -- the filterdns core dumping continues...

    FWIW - have been running the 2.0 beta for a month or so and really like the progression from 1.2.3!

    Happy to post more info that would help solve the problem.  Only thing I can remember changing today was a firewall rule that added a network to the pass rule (it was allowing all previously).



  • Can you give me the /var/etc/filterdns.conf contents?

  • ermal,

    Think I figured the problem…

    But to your question, here is the contents

    cat /var/etc/filterdns.conf
     = EasyRuleBlockHostsWAN

    I had added some bans from the firewall log when I moved to 2.0.  I deleted these IPs from the alias and I believe that is when things went haywire…

    Having removed the alias above (EasyRuleBlockHostsWAN) I have ceased to see the core dump in the log.

    So an alias that isn't defined (or better said was defined and is now blank) can cause issues...

    Hope that helps you out -- thanks for the note and apologies for the delay.

  • I have solved it in code.
    Thanks for reporting the special case.
